The collections and services of Oulu University Library are generally available for use by everyone.
Library users are required to have a library card.
It is advisable to inform the library immediately of a lost library card.
The contact information of University of Oulu and Oamk students and staff are updated in the library’s user register directly from the student and human resources information systems of the University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Sciences.
Other library users must notify the library of any changes to their name or address. The customer can also update their changed contact information by logging in to Oula-Finna.
University of Oulu and Oamk students and staff members can dowload Tuudo application for free from Google Play or App Store. Sign in with your university or Oamk account.
